When life becomes overwhelming, you must stand apart, go on retreat, fast, readdress the fundamentals of life, the real purpose. Get the Great Instruction. Embrace it truly. And then leave your retreat. People take retreats for just this purpose. It has traditionally been understood that retreat is completely necessary. You cannot make simplicity out of confusion. You must step aside.

If one wishes to understand the sea, ask a sailor, a
lover of the sea. By the same token, if one wishes to
understand the heart and nature of the Guru-devotee relationship,
ask a real devotee devoted to a real Guru, a teacher and
Master of the heart. James Steinberg is such a devotee,
whose scholarship bows before insights and knowledge that
could only be gained from this living relationship.
